Much More Black

I’ve been watching nothing but The Newsroom on HBOGo and Netflix movies where Edith Head served as the costume designer. I made a list of the films she worked and I am determined to watch them all. Starting with Funny Face, Roman Holiday, Rear Window, Sabrina, and What a Way to Go. Anyway. Binge watching these two things simultaneously is starting to show up in...

Why Don’t You… Wear a Skinny Scarf?

‘Why Don’t You’ is my weekly tribute to legendary editor Diana Vreeland who penned a column of the same name for Harper’s Bazaar for 26 years begging, “Don’t just be your ordinary dull self. Why don’t you be ingenious and make yourself into something else?” For her fall 2014 collection, Miuccia Prada was reportedly inspired by The Bitter Tears of Petra...

Here on The City, we are all about cultivating personal style, luckily, we can look to some of our favorite celebrities for a few style lessons.

Photographin’ The City

I kind-of miss when my blog read more like a diary. So in an effort to work on that and venture out, actually showing New York life on the blog, I created a bucket list of tourist-y things that I want to do.

‘Why Don’t You’ is my weekly tribute to legendary editor Diana Vreeland who penned a column of the same name for Harper’s Bazaar for 26 years begging, “Don’t just be your ordinary dull self. Why don’t you be ingenious and make yourself into something else?” I was riding the train home recently, thankful to have squoze (yup, squoze) myself onto...

Part 2

Truthfully, I liked the majority of the photos that my coworker took for me that one time I ventured to Harlem for brunch.  But I don’t have anything to say worthy of a blog post to go with them. Well, that’s not true. There is a lot to say, but I’m not sure how or why I would say anything...

Strong as Nails

I met this lady at the Further With Ford Conference. We had breakfast at the same table earlier that day, so when I saw her during a tour of Ford’s Dearborn Truck Plant later, I spoke. Nothing serious, small talk. I work at Glam.com. I have a blog I neglect. The usual. She goes on to tell me that about...

I Find You… Delightful

If I’m being honest, New York kicked me in my *ss last week in a major way. My mother came up from Pennsylvania on Friday to see with her own eyes that I was okay. I don’t care that I’m 27 and I needed my mom. And I don’t care if you know that, either. It was nice to have...

Dear New York, Please, Just SHUT Up

I love this city, I hate it sometimes, too. In an effort to keep track of my feelings about the Big Apple during my time here I try my best to chronicle them in a letter to this crazy place. Welcome to Dear New York–a series posted monthly on the anniversary of the date I moved here.  “You’re really beautiful,”...
